Why not just get a self powered subwoofer and run it from your pre-amp outputs?

I would not try to power passive subwoofer a long with a pair of speakers at the same time with an Accuphase E-202. I know it is a pretty powerful quality amp but that is a lot to ask for the Accuphase to power all that. I agree with Brf. Get a self powered subwoofer and connect the preamp output from the E202 to the sub. There are lots of ways to hook up a sub to the E-202 with your speaker set.
Sorry i should have mentioned I am getting an active subwoofer.
So the pre out is where I should connect it? the reason I'm confused is because someone told me I needed to get a "high level speaker output cable" (or something like that) and connect it to the speaker outputs because it's an old amp.
I connected one to the pre out before and everytime I turned the subwoofer on & off my Accuphases build in trip switch shut the amp down for a split second.
Hey thanks for the replies you have cleared things up for me.
I think I will give it another go with a decent sub this time as the one I tried before apparently got left out in the rain so I'm now told.....eeeeekkkk
That might explain the problems my amp was having with it and not the connections.
